be the same again. as bill clinton and admiral mullen say at the back of my book on the dust jacket blurbs, the things that he did as a reformer will never be undone. and i'm not talking about whether they are bell bottoms or trousers or side burns, those things can be changed. but the way he reformed the social policies and made the navy response to the contemporary needs of society and what he did with respect to vis-a-vis the soviets during the period of the cold war and the strategic arms limitations and his role there. these are things that have left a mark in history, and an important one. and i try to deal with those in the book. what bud zumwalt did and what i was drawn to about his life is that he made the navy think about things that they ought to have been thinking about before he forced them to. and, indeed, he took on the charge and the charter of redoing the social contract of the navy. an institution that he loved. and he didn't want to destroy the navy, he didn't want to do anything except reform it and bring it into the 20th century so that young people would join the navy

that it happened in the 1990s, when bill clinton was talking about and trying to do something about gun violence and responsible gun laws. you see it happening again after sandy hook. after the two firefighters who were assassinated just the other day and two police officers who were killed on christmas eve. the fact of the matter is these people buy these guns because they can, because it's so easy to buy assault weapons in the united states of america. and we've got to do something about that. yes, we've got to get people to get involved in the way they did here in l.a. with a gun buyback program. very successful program. would have been even more successful if we hadn't run out of money. there were people waiting in line for hours to give up these guns including assault weapons, a grenade launcher. you saw that automatic weapon with a silencer. these are weapons that don't really have any purpose except to kill and to kill a lot of people. it's not just gun buyback programs. assault weapons ban on a federal level. we need to eliminate the t.r. amendment, which makes it very, very difficult to

haven't seen that in 30 years. we go back to paying the taxes when bill clinton was president of the united states and the economy was a hell of a lot better when bill clinton was president than it is today. i don't think the fiscal cliff is all that bad a deal looking at it from the point of view of a progressive democrat. it's not perfect, but i worry about ceos that are funding fix the debt because, you know, they got us into this in the first place. i don't have a lot of faith in their ability to get us out. one more thing, you know, if there's a deal between the democrats and the republicans, i guarantee you the democrats and the republicans will make out just fine. i'm not so sure about the american people. >> governor rendell -- thanks governor dean for that one. i want to pick up on something you said about kicking the can down the roads. one of the things that had been an issue had been taking the debt ceiling conversation off the table. republicans want to keep it as a point of leverage. it sounds like it's not going to be part of whatever gets negotiated. doesn't th

the advantage here, the polls indicate, as with bill clinton and this showdown with newt gingrich. the public tends to blame republicans when this happens. especially now at a time when over on the house side, you have so many republicans who are so far right and worry about farther right running against them in primary, that john boehner's plan last week. we don't know how much has changed since last week. but president obama sounded like he was saying something that he had been planning to say a all along. >> take a listen to the president's tone and tell me if you think somebody has changed. >> ordinary folks. they do their jobs. they meet deadlines. they sit down and they discuss things and then things happen. if there are disagreements, they sort through the disagreements. the notion that our elected leadership can't do the same thing is mind boggling to them. >> joy, is this is same kind of negotiator we saw in the first term? >> i'll tell you, richard. one of the things you notice that the president didn't do was offer any new plan. i think he's laying this debacle squarely at the feet

of midterms. bill clinton's democrats lost 54 house seethes and 8 seats in '946 before turning the tables with the surprise wins in '98. both parties said it was due in part maybe in whole to the public backlash against republicans who seemed too focused on the lewinski scandal. president bush of course saw the opposite. had a great first midterm. not so great second one. two there. republicans gained ground under president bush. before losing big in 2006. what's behind the truth of the theory of the six-year itch? seems logical over the course of six years but when you look at each case, there are circumstances that make it hard to draw a sweeping conclusion. by the time his second midterm rolled around, truman was four months in to u.s. intervention in korea. an effort that republicans used against his party. eisenhower was saddled with a postwar economy. by the midterms in 1958, u.s. unemployment spiked to nearly 7%, double when he was first elected six years earlier. in the 2006, the u.s. was in to the iraq war and facing heavy rye lens and combination for president bush and his party
